Back in the eighties, I was flying for a rather large and timely NYC newspaper. 60 minutes was there making business jets look wasteful, the boss said get the plane out of here. It was nice not to be there for the launch. Last time, in a Global, we left before the rush and the pax watched the race on the Direct TV, toasting the winner with Dom.
This scene happens a lot at events. I was once Number 15 in the hold for an approach to State College, PA. I had no idea what the Penn State v. Notre Dame games were like. Probably a hundred jets all trying to get in and leave at the same time, non-radar then.
